Glow Ride on Percival’s Island

Posted on

Decorate your bike in lights and head to Percival’s Island

Do you like to ride your bike?  Do you enjoy riding in a unique setting?  Are you up for a fun evening of a bit of exercise, community togetherness, nature and fun?  Then the Glow Ride on Percival’s Island is just for you.

On Friday, August 24, 2018 you will pedal under a full moon.  Meeting at Percival’s Island, you will ride 3 miles down the trail, turn around and ride back, for a total ride of 6 miles.  Dress up.  Wear bright colors, funny hats, unique shirts, have fun with it.  Decorate your bike with glow sticks and lights.  What about streamers?  Flowers?  Bows?  Bells and horns?  Again, have fun with it.  A prize will be awarded for the most festive bike, so let your imagination run wild!

The ride starts at 8:00 pm and lasts until 9:00 pm.  It is open to riders of all ages and abilities.  All bikes MUST be decorated in lights of some sort to participate.  The Glow Ride is free but you must register at www.lynchburgparkand rec.com.  If you have any questions call 434.455.5858.

For guests staying at the B & B, Percival’s Island is located at the far end of downtown Lynchburg, VA from The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast, about 1.25 miles.  You can ride your decorated bike from the B & B.  Just remember, it’s a steep ride or climb back up Cabell Street from the trail.  Main Street to Rivermont Avenue to D Street is a flatter route that may be a better choice.  See you at the Glow Ride!
